On the 30th of October, 2022, BrainMark held a training session on BrainAOP – build an effective Annual Operating Plan with Amerasian Shipping Logistics Corp (ASL)

The AOP, also known as Annual Operating Plan is a specific plan that demonstrates annual business operations of an organization. Also, it is used to outline specific plans, estimates on income and expenditure during a period of one year, thereby determining the most accurate operational goals of the business in the near future.

The proper time for enterprises to make their own operating plans is in quarter 4, because no plan means that they will end up with failing. Therefore, Amerasian Shipping Logistics Corp (ASL) decided to have training courses on business plan methods for employees at this time.
